1st Voice:

In the presence of a queen?

Princes hold conceit most dear,
All conceit in humour seen.

1st Voice:
Thou art a heavy laden mood.

2nd Voice:
Humour is Invention`s food.

Chorus:
But never humour yet was true,
But that which only pleaseth you.

1st Voice:
O I am as heavy as earth,
Say then, who is Humour now?

I am now inclined to mirth,
Humour I as well as thou.

No, no. Wit is cherished so.

Heavy things sink to the deep.

1st Voice:
In her presence all things smile.

2nd Voice:
Humour frolic then awhile.

Chorus:
But never humour yet was true,
But that which only pleaseth you.
